Religious rituals have started in Ayodhya, ahead of the groundbreaking ceremony for the Ram temple. Priests were seen conducting a 'Ramarchan Puja', which is a prayer to invite all major gods and goddesses, at the Ram Janambhoomi site. The Ram Janmbhoomi Teerth Kshetra said pious soil & water from all the major religious sites, places of national importance and sacred rivers across the nation are reaching Ayodhya for the construction of the grand temple. Five silver bricks will also be set inside the sanctum sanctorum during the 'bhoomi pujan' ceremony. The first will be laid by PM Modi. The five bricks are believed to symbolise the five planets as per the Hindu mythology. The design and the architecture of the temple is the same as the one proposed by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad. The design will follow Vishnu temple's Nagara style while the 'garbha griha' will be octagonal.
